Crochet Summer Tops

Hi crochet friends,

It has been such a long time since I've blogged I almost forgot how. I have been working full time, with very little time for crochet, but I manged to get a few summer tops finished. The first top, cream colored button up, was a WIP forever! Not like the old days when I was an "at home Mom" and I could do a garment in 5 days. I miss being home, but I like my job and the money (I know that sounds bad, but it helps so much to have that income.)

Sorry I don't many details on the summer tops below, the only one with a pattern is "Cher" and the other two I didn't have time to fully test, most likely will not publish, my designing days are far and few between now.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out Knotty Generation.
Happy crocheting! -Pam

Top Down Summer Cardi - debating if I should add sleeves, the cap sleeve reminds me of Judy Jetson, I'm convinced that sleeves will make this even better. I used a DK weight yarn and both J/10-6mm and H/8- 5mm crochet hooks.

Square Neck Tank - I used Vanna's Choice, Color#135 Rust. Crochet hook I/9-5.50 mm. Love rust with brown, this is totally finished, nothing to add or change, I love it just the way it is.

"Cher" - my design for Vickie Howell's book Pop Goes Crochet. I used Berroco Suede yarn in Color #3729 Zoro. Crochet hook J/10 - 6mm. The essential black vest.
